The Filipino God is NOT a Filipino God, but a Jewish God

The God of the cannibals will be a cannibal, the God of the Crusaders a crusader, and the God of the Merchants a merchant. . . Ralph Waldo Emerson . . . Sadly, the God of the Filipinos is not a Filipino. He is Jesus, a Jew, born of Jewish mom and dad in a small Jewish town called Bethlehem some 2,015 years ago. Jesus has always been a lovable and a merciful kind of God to us Filipinos because Jesus rightly preached: "If any man come to me and hate NOT his father, and mother, and wife and children, and brothers, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26. Something even more wonderful, Jesus also declared: "Think not that I came to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a sword." Matt. 10:34. . . Indeed, in the Philippines, as the only Jesus country in Asia since the 16th century, for the glory of Jesus, we Filipinos have no love for our mothers and father, we have no love for our brothers and sisters, we have no love for our wives and children, indeed, we have no love for our country down here. We only love Jesus, our Savior, up there!. . . In the meantime, millions upon millions of poor Filipinos hope to merit eternal salvation in heaven one day; especially by enjoying the spread of corruption, pollution, degradation, and earthly damnation here on earth!. . . I said it before, I say it again: our endless troubles as a people, and our mindless problems as a nation begin in the Filipino family derailed as it is historically by Christian values and beliefs!...

Poch, I am hesitant to say this, but this screed sounds kind of racist or ethnocentric. Just because Jesus was a Jew does not mean he could not represent the whole of humanity. Besides being the Son of God, he is often referred to in the gospels as the Son of Man. By the way, from a Biblical point of view, there is only one race, the human race. We all trace our lineage to Noah, back to Adam, so we are all related by blood. There are many nations or ethnic groups, but only one race under the cross of Christ. Believers are brothers and sisters in the family of God, co-heirs together in Christ. But from a godless worldview, what prevents atheists and evolutionists from considering some ethnic groups inferior to others? Charles Darwin predicted that civilized races would replace savage races. The gap between savages and the civilized races would become wider, like the gap he saw between the white races and the ape.

Ken, out of the 8 BILLION PEOPLE EXISTING IN THIS GOD-forsaken world today, how come only 1 BILLION PEOPLE are pretty impressed with, and believe in the words of Jesus who, more than 2,000 years ago, while crucified on the cross, cried out loud: MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME? Matt. 27:46. Cheers! Poch Suzara

Poch, reports of Christianity's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Christianity may be waning in Western Europe, but it's on an impressive growth curve in other parts of the world, like in Asia, Africa, Central and South America. Blessings! Ken Sidadayaw
